Mr. Emmett John will be making his triumphant return to speech and occupational therapy this week. You may recall that some idiot at the insurance company decided that Emmett has had 180 days to improve to the level of his typical peers. Since he hasn’t by this point, we don’t expect him to ever. Therefore, all services will be discontinued.
That’s not the exact quote, as I don’t have the paperwork in front of me but that’s pretty darn close to the exact words.
It took me awhile but I went to bat for Emmett and appealed the decision and eventually won. It however to several months to get all the paperwork to finally go through.
The end result is that Emmett will be returning to most of his therapies this coming Wednesday. The significance of this can’t be overstated. Emmett desperately needs these therapies and not having them has been difficult for all of us but especially Emmett. As a child with severe sensory needs, we could only meet so many of those needs at home.
I’m so excited that he will be returning to these services once again. He is so excited about going back to see his friends. 🙂
